Farm bill deal may be close

Sen. Amy Klobuchar

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KCNDAM) -- Senator Amy Klobuchar, one of those working on final Farm Bill language, says they're close to announcing something.

Klobuchar says there are issues that still need to be addressed, but there's also a lot of optimism.

One of those hurdles is with a dairy provision, but Klobuchar says it can be worked out.

House Seaker John Boehner has been a vocal critic of the dairy provisions, but Klobuchar says she's hopeful those objections can be overcome.

Klobuchar and Senator John Hoeven, who's also a conferee, are both hoping to see a new Farm Bill brought up for final approval before the end of the month.
